to visit this town and other parts of Finland
but I never forget to see the Samba Carnaval, a
very nice one exactly the copy of Rio Carnaval

Where's the current dates? - Unlike other websites, CaribbeanChoice only publishes the official dates as released by the carnival organizer. Most other websites simply guess what next year's dates are. We don't do that. We want to make sure our information is as accurate as possible.

This page will be updated as soon as we get the official dates from the event organizer, or they post it on their official website, whichever comes first.

Note: We haven't heard anything from this carnival in awhile. It may not be held anymore. If you have information about this carnival, please contact us.
